By now most of you have probably already noticed that we haven’t mentioned anything about Brewfest 2016. Due to new enforcement regulations etc we are unable to host the event until we can come up with new ideas and sponsors that can help us.
Until then, please support our organization in other ways by volunteering or by making a donation on our website.
You can read more information about the new regulations here: https://beerofsc.com/2016/06/28/your-special-event-is-probably-illegal-now/

West Florence High School / Florence ‘Rail Trail’ area
Beach Sweep / River Sweep—organized by S.C. Sea Grant Consortium in partnership with S.C. Department of Natural Resources—is the largest one-day litter cleanup of South Carolina’s beaches and waterways. Every third Saturday in September thousands of South Carolinians volunteer to clear trash from our beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps.
Beach Sweep/River Sweep is an annual event for South Carolina since 1988 and is held in conjunction with The Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, which involves several hundred- thousand volunteers in over 75 nations.
This year KFB and our volunteers will meet behind West Florence High School in the back parking lot (near the Florence ‘Rail Trail’) to clean up the swamp area behind the school. Closed-toe shoes and insect repellent are recommended. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. For more information contact site captain Terasa Lott or visit the River Sweep page on the S.C. Department of Natural Resources website at http://www.dnr.sc.gov/bsrs/
